Forbes magazine came out with an article "15 New Cars to Avoid" stating...
That sundae or nachos are so delicious and fun. Eating them makes you happy. We know we need to exercise a little extra to indulge in such fantastic treats. But it's worth the extra effort.
So, I am not sure why this author could even consider the Jeep Wrangler in the same category as these other vehicles. It is truly a one of a kind mode of transportation.
I would also like to point out, I don't understand why some feel it necessary to constantly bash the Jeep Wrangler -- jealousy most likely. They are having record sales and more and more people are out enjoying the off road trails. Folks are joining in on the fun of making their Jeep unique to themselves.
Just like all the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimted owners feel, the good of the Wrangler outweighs the bad.
I would like to counter point a few statements made by the author in the Forbes article as well.
No one who ever bought a Jeep Wrangler or JKU intended to buy the Jeep for the comfort of cruising down the interstate like a luxury vehicle. When buying a JK or JKU, most of the time folks plan on taking it out on rocky, off the beaten paths, the sandy beach, or those muddy trails through the woods. So, of course comfort does not come in mind. How on earth could it, when we love bouncing around on those bumpy rides. Do you think folks who ride on roller coasters are looking for a leisurely ride up and down the tracks. No! We do it for the adrenaline rush and the thrill!
Jeep Momma Steering Attenuator Review
Well... Jeez NO SHIT! Anyone with common sense would know this, and would expect it when cruising down the road at high speeds with the sun in our face and wind in our hair. OH and by the way, most Jeepers don't ride at high speeds down the road, because we are never in a hurry to get anywhere, because we are enjoying our time driving around in our topless "CAR"
Of course! That's because they are so loved!
Value list of what? -- list of characteristics needed when buying a car. Don't we all have different wants and needs when it comes to purchasing a vehicle.
Well here's my list of values needed when I bought my new vehicle...
-- Fun & Freedom
-- Ability to take the top off
-- Ability to take the doors off
-- Ability to drive before the snowplows plow the roads
-- Drive over rocks and downed trees
-- Go Anywhere
-- Community of like minded friendly people
-- Ability to be part of a nothing like it community
-- Modify my vehicle to fit my personality
So there you go... But I guess it is good to have articles like this written. It keeps people from purchasing more Jeeps and that means less Jeepers on the trails so they do't get overcrowded!
